UNC Charlotte Football

38-22 good guys. Pretty dominating win. 7-5 is a hell of a start for 1st year Will Healy. This guy is the real deal and is going to take this program places. Master facility plan is going to release expansion plans soon too. The momentum and buzz is not only local but national media is picking up on the team and coach (young dabo-esque). Sports is a powerful marketing tool, add in bowl eligibility and one of the hottest up and coming young coaches in college football - this is attracting great publicity for both the university and the city.

Such a good game last night.  First winning season and bowl eligible.  Some are predicting that the 49ers will play in the Belk Bowl.  How cool is it that a team that has basically been on the fringes of the Charlotte sports scene essentially since it’s inception is now getting more of the local attention it needs and will possibly play its first bowl game in its own home town?

Last year at this time I was kind of disappointed when UNCC rescinded Mike Houston’s offer for the head coaching job and hired Will Healy instead.  It felt kind of like we had missed a real opportunity.  Looking back on it now, I am glad Houston went to ECU and took his 4-8 season with him.  Will Healy is the man, and I can’t imagine to what heights the program may go especially if he has a few more seasons like this season, he’s able to bring his own recruits in, and the stadium and facilities get a proper upfit/expansion fit for an FBS team.  I can see a day where the annual App State-University of Charlotte football rivalry game is the hottest ticket in college football for the state of North Carolina.

While on a local level a CLT-App game would be awesome. I’d rather see a rivalry develop with NC State or another SEC/ACC team to help the program get more recognition on a national level.

I’d love to see a day when Charlotte earns a place in one of the Power 5 conferences.

and when anyone in the sports media talks about UNCC they just say Charlotte not CHA or University of NC just Charlotte.   Almost like they talk about the University of Houston.

Great story about how #ClubLit got started and this city needs to get behind this team too since the majority of UNCC grads live in the area.  I remember when there was resistance to a Division 1 football team here.  (and this team is called CHARLOTTE)   Go #CharLit do the QC proud today!

Perhaps you already know this, but I think this was a marketing decision made by former AD Judy Rose. The sports teams would be known simply as "Charlotte".
